Sudan accepts Congolese mediation to end conflict with Chad

However Ambassador Khedr Haroun Director of the Department of bilateral regional relations at the foreign ministry said that Nguesso didn’t elaborate the details of his mediation.

This announcement comes at a time where President Idris Deby told Radio France Internationale (RFI) that he had refused to meet al-Bashir on the sideline of the African summit in Egypt. The Burkina Faso president Blaise Compaore had tried to gather the two presidents in Charam El Sheikh.

"I don’t need to meet (Sudanese President) Omar Hassan al-Bashir ... I’m for peace in this region, but I have no need to meet someone who has never kept his commitments," he said.

Sudan broke off diplomatic relations with Chad following an attack by the Justice and equality Movement on May 10 against the Sudanese government in Khartoum. Sudan accused Chad of providing the Darfur rebel group with money and logistical support to carry the raid.

Since 2004 the neighbouring Chad and Sudan trade accusations of supporting rebel groups against each other. Chadian factor in the five years conflict is designed by international responsible as new complication for the international efforts to end Darfur conflict.

President Denis Sassou Nguesso who was a supporter of the Chadian president in the past criticised his friend Deby after the May 10 coup. Western reports say he seems more convinced by the blames made by his father in law president Omar Bongo of Gabon against President Deby.

The Congo Brazzaville is one of the five members of the contact group charged with the follow up of the implementation of Dakar Agreement to end the conflict between the two countries.

Sudanese and Congolese president agreed also to set up a resident diplomatic representation in the two countries. They also consented to reactivate trade and economic cooperation between them, starting by inviting businessmen from both countries to meet in Khartoum to discuss how to upgrade the economic and trade relations.

    Hay! everyone! specially all black persons on the world, can I get a little help with reason why “President Denis Sassou Nguesso” of Congo has to use creams to brighten his black skin? what does being a black person mean to Mr.Denis Sassou Nguesso as an African president? I think even if Mr. Denis Sassou Nguesso is a president of Congo, still he is representing black African people as black as his Natural skin he wind up with creams was black, no matter what religion he may have, that wouldn’t make different I think. Unless Mr. Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo who himself is the first black African president who wind his natural black skin from black to white can explain to all black persons around the world what black skin in human mean? So that All black persons should start to recognize what they are on the world? Black people around the world want to know from him if white people are the one recognize as human, and what would black people around the world would be call? Or if white people are considered beautiful and would black people be considered ugly? Black people around the world are owing Mr.Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo an explanation, as he is the black African president who is leading all black Congolese men and women and rest of young and old African women to the world of creams to embarrasses the race of Black world for a favorer of white world? Moreover, all black people around the world would like to know if Michael Jackson is routed to Congo? Why I asked this is because I realized that all black people who are recognized not African any more such as African American turn to love being black more than black African who are still call African because they came from Africa as international or refugees. African American are not using creams that would wind their skin from black to white, except Michael Jackson. That is why all black people around the world should want to know if Michael Jackson is routed to country lead by Mr. Denis Sassou Nguesso who himselve is using creams. Furthermore, there is a reason why Mr. Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo should be explaining to the whole world of black race why black people should be winding their black skin from black to white, is that all black young women and girls who wind their black skin are suffering. They cannot find love of their dream because they turn to hate their black men and favorer white men or other bright skin men. However, white men turn to love black women who did not wind their natural black skin and black men never want to married them neither because they have made it clear that they hate being black by winding their black skin. All people who wind themselves are identical among black race, because the delicate skin of their eyes, around their nails, and at their joins of their fingers and feets would remain black just like the picture of Mr. Denis Sassou Nguesso. They cannot be confused with the others black race for married. Also African families who got married in Africa are in the similler problem of hate of black skin when they slide out of Africa. they would stay together for few years and later end up separating and the men can end up with child support. But, the route cause of the separation would be that man have denied his wife from use of cream so she can become model to attract men of white or other bright color whom she can later tips out her black male. When married women are denied by their husband from use of cream, they turn around and excuse men of rolling over them so that the laws that protect women right can be acted on men and that can later result with men being kicks out of their families. That is why it should be very important for president Denis Sassou Nguesso as he is one of the people who is using creams to crash their black skin out can briefed all black race around the whole world about what black skin of African people represents African in the human world?
